No arrival from Europe or the Islands since our last.

We have been favoured with a Liverpool Paper of the 29th December last, from which we take the following extracts: -
[Transcriber's note: most European news not transcribed.]

"Ministers have settled with the English Distillers, that if they shall continue to use sugar only in the distillation, after the 31st of this month, they will propose to Parliament to equalize the duty – that is, abate the 9d per gallon, extra duty, which would otherwise attach on the expiration of the Act. – The same proposals have been made to the Scotch Distillers.

A Deputation of merchants trading to the United Sates, waited on Saturday upon the Marquis Wellesley, for the purpose of ascertaining if his Lordship, had any answer to communicate to the application that had been made a short time back on the subject of the Berlin and Milan Decrees, and the Orders in Council; and also on what had recently occurred in the United States. Lord Wellesley officially replied, that he was not yet enabled to return an answer to the application alluded to.

From a late American Paper.

Among the documents, submitted by the President to Congress, is the following letter to Mr. Pinckney, ordering his return to the United States, in case a minister of high rank, &c. is not sent to this country. Thus the plot daily thickens, and there is ever prospect that it will end in deep tragedy. The British Government have probably more honourable employment for their "men of rank" than to send them to this country to be vilified and insulted by our Secretary of State and mobbed by the populace. Had the dismission of Mr. Jackson been right and just, this step would not have been improper; but, as that was outrageously wrong, every thing growing out of it is wrong.


SIR – From a review of the conduct of the British Government, in relation to a Plenipotentiary successor to Mr. Jackson, as presented in your several communications, including even those brought by the Hornet, at which date and on which inviting occasion the subject does not appear to have been within the attention of government, the President thinks it improper, that the United States should continue to be represented in London, by a Minister Plenipotentiary. In case, therefore, no appointment of a successor to Mr. Jackson, of that grade, should have taken place at the receipt of this letter, you will consider your functions suspended, and you will accordingly take you leave of absence, charging a fit person with the affairs of the Legation.
Considering the season at which this instruction may have its effect and the possibility of a satisfactory change in the system of our relations with Great Britain, the time of your return to the United States is left to your discretion and convenience.
(Signed) R. SMITH.

DIED. - On Sunday the 3d Inst. at his house in Cumingsburg, deeply regretted by his numerous Friends, WILLIAM HEATHCOTE Esq. His many public and private virtues, and well-known abilities, will make his loss long felt and lamented in this community.

On the same Night, Mr. DYRE KINGSLEY, Journeyman Printer to this Office.

Yesterday, at Pl. Jealousie, Mr. COLIN CAMPBELL.

Last Night at the House of P. BENJAMIN Esq. Mr. CALEB S. BULL.

This Morning, at the House of Messrs. JAS. JACKSON & Co. Mr. JOHN MILLER.

The four last were all young Men, recently arrived in the Colony.

The following has been handed us by a Correspondent:

Died on Sunday Evening, at his House in town, aged 52, WILLIAM HEATHCOTE Esq. a Gentleman adorned with many amiable qualities, which made his company sought after by most of the respectable Persons in the Colony, and very deservedly; - as he was conspicuous for a goodness of heart, a benevolence and uprightness of character, that almost always lastingly attached to him those who had once been so fortunate as to become of his acquaintance! - He was foremost on all occasions of doing good! - Was a parent to the Orphan! - And many will lament his loss with sincere sorrow!! - In the cause of a friend he shewed a zeal so ardent, no difficulties could abate it, and was constantly observed to be infinitely more attentive to the interests and welfare of others than to his own. 'Tis said of him that he was never known to have paid a shilling to a Lawyer to prosecute a suit for him, tho' very few Persons in the Colony have had more extensive concerns than he had, or been more artfully dealt with than he has been, in his progress thru' life! On the other hand - the slightest intimation to him of a case of distress made a claim on his immediate protection. He continued for many years past with an inflexible constancy in avoiding all occasions of attracting public notice. - tho' his great abilities would well have merited popularity. - Living, very retired on his Estate Perseverance, respected and loved by his neighbours, to whom, as well as to a large circle of acquaintances and Friends, he had greatly endeared himself by his very communicative kind disposition, blended with such urbanity and sweetness of manners as were almost irresistible.

5 Brig Fame, - Plennley, - Portland, - Fish, &c.
